Notes from 3/8/18 - Bring out your dead

Postby Caelesti » Thu Mar 08, 2018 10:31 pm

The party kept watches for the night. There were no disturbances outside, though a party confrontation did take place between Bell and Deelo, and Deelo was not in the house in the morning. There was a note, possibly written by Deelo, stating that she was moving on.

The rest of the party brought the coffin to the cemetery. There was a disturbance ahead, some creepy scream. The party advanced. Father Donobvich was praying to remove evil spirits from his son Doru, trapped under the floorboards, ideally in a secret room.

The party carried the coffin to the cemetery and dug a hole in the family plot. The father said Kolyan had to be buried at dawn, so the party had to stay for the night.

Casual conversation with the father revealed that a strange wizard led others, including his son, to a castle with a beast. The son was killed, but was not raised, making the party wonder about the state of the son under the floorboards crying out about his hunger. The father eluded that his son was a vampire, for about a year.

The party rested at Kolyan's house during the day to be far from the son's wailing. They returned to the cemetery at night to guard until the dawn burial.

At night, spirits of dead adventurers marched on the castle to continue their missions.

Belle: okay
Belle: I take the note
Belle: and put rope away in backpack
Belle: and sit out on watch
Belle: Belle wakes next two who wake next two
Belle: i can't hear
Belle: only static
Belle: should I reconnect
Belle: may I call
Belle: type anything you want to say
Belle: don't have number handt
Belle: snote read by voice of Deilo
I've decided to strike out on my own. The gnome asked a great question after attacking me during watch: "Which side are you on?"

At the end of the day, I'm on the side that allows the wind in my hair and loves a bright sun shining on the land. Perhaps that means I'm on my own side or perhaps there are others like me in this cursed land. I wish you luck, but I bet I find that blazing sword first.

May legend know your names and that Vistani witch not need new rubes.

Do we feel any moral obligation to rid the town of the vampire under the floorboards?

Should we "stake" the dead burgermeister just in case before we bury him?
